Japan Gets Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ Today As Well As A Demo
And it's totally not fair.
Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ is a compilation of some of the greatest rhythm games you can find within the series, and it's only available for 3DS. Except it's only available in Japan on the Nintendo eShop. Because we're bad people and we don't deserve anything else, apparently.
And why wouldn't you want it, with 70 mini-games from the collected Rhythm Heaven history, and 30 brand-new games to try out? Japanese gamers can pick up the game today, as well as a demo to see if they can stay on the beat long enough to conquer the games. Nintendo has released a trailer corresponding with the demo that you can see above, but there's still no word on a Western release just yet.
Given the fact that this iteration of Rhythm Heaven likely allows for the usage of the face buttons for some of the games, this particular entry should be making quite a splash. The demo looks like it shows off quite a few of the games you'll find within the full version, where you pluck hairs off of a bizarre-looking thing, play table tennis, and lots of other zany stuff. In short, this should be headed to the West. With an E3 showing right around the corner, could Nintendo be keeping it under wraps? We'll see in a few days!
For Japanese readers, shoo! Go download this game!
